Imagine the ground in a forest. Usually, it is full of fallen leaves, mulched branches or bark from trees, pine needles, and so on. This creates the perfect environment for pests that creep and crawl. It allows them a place to hide and a spot to nest and lay eggs. Now imagine the area around your Johnstown home or business. Are there leaves or mulch in the home window wells? Are there leaves gathering right up against your building? Consider any foliage that touches or hangs over your premises has a likely place for pests.
There are some measures we can all take as basic avoidance against pests. You can sweep, mop, vacuum crumbs and clean up food spills to eliminate traces of odors that draw pests in. Another degree of simple protection is a chemical barrier around the outside and inside the perimeter of your home or business to deter pests. Keep your Johnstown property or home protected with Lawn Doctor's unique formula administered by our specialists.
Physical barriers that protect your home or business include those that apparent, but there are also barriers you might not have thought of. Doors and windows physically block pests from coming in. When open, windows must have an additional level of protection: a screen. A screen allows fresh air inside your Johnstown property while it keeps insects out. Another degree of protection around windows and screens is caulking. Caulking fills in cracks and seals gaps between the windowsill and the screen or the screen itself.
